Applications now open for our dissertation prize

The SCGRG offers an annual prize of £100 for the best undergraduate dissertation in Social and Cultural Geography. We also announce a runner-up prize. Both prize-winners receive a year’s personal subscription to the journal Social & Cultural Geography published by Taylor & Francis.

Nominated dissertations should be: an outstanding theoretical and/or empirical piece of work; usually approx.10,000 words in length; submitted for formal assessment in the preceding academic year to a UK Higher Education Institution for a BA/BSc level degree programme in geography; written in English. We are looking to reward both excellent scholarship and innovation in the study of social and cultural geography (please see the SCGRG mission statement for our definition of what is considered social and cultural geography). Please note that a department may not submit more than one entry and nominated dissertations should not be submitted for consideration for any other RGS-IBG prizes. Nominations are requested from the Head of Department or Dissertation Convenor.

All dissertations should be submitted as a single pdf file with a post-September email and contact address for the student. Submissions should be emailed with ‘SCGRG Dissertation prize submission’ as the subject header. For any further queries, please contact the SCGRG dissertation convenor, Sofie Narbed (details below).
